Elvis Presley did yoga?

Imagine Elvis Presley doing sun salutation! Believe it or not, this rock'n roll star was a meditating vegetarian and also a yoga practitioner. He reportedly said that:  "I know some of the things I think are kind of far out… and I don’t meet a lot of people that I can relate to, and those that I do meet need to know more about their spiritual selves.”

He was also a frequent visitor of Yogananda's Lake Shrine retreat located on in California. This old school video is hilarious. The way it has been shot, and just everything about it. It shows Elvis Presley as a poor yoga practitioner while singing his song: "Yoga is as Yoga does"
